Description:
When I learned to drive, I quickly came to realize that speed limits in the United States are supposed to be evenly divisible by 5.
Once in a while, some local governing board will make an unusual speed limit in order to draw attention to it.
Expanded Description:

Formerly the "I Can't Drive....21?" locationless cache (GCAC83)

The following speed limits which do not end in '0' or in '5' have been reported. Do you have others?
Instructions for Posting a Unusual Speed Limits Waymark:

The rules are simple:

  • Include limits which are not evenly divisible by 5 (in your local units of measurement, as written on the sign).
  • One posting per location, preferably the one closest to the entrance of the location.

  • Waymark title should include speed, and location (14MPH - Frivlas' Mall

  • Post signs that are labeled in local units of measurement (MPH in the U.S.).

  • Please be sure to type the posted speed limit into your log entry.

  • Please include the location (city, state, and highway name, where applicable).

  • Be sure to post the coordinates of your find.

  • Please post a close picture of the sign.

  • And last but not least, be careful out there.

    Posted at 13 miles per hour, though there is not much of an ability to go that fast what with all the potholes, narrow sections and sharp turns. Speeding will result in a tree or swamp incident.
